    the security of a bank may deem that all patrons remove hats and sunglasses. While it may come down to a civil rights issue, you do not have to enter the bank. We have to chose in this country what is more important security or freedom. There is a cost to our freedoms, and maybe bank robberies is one of them.

    Anonymous on Nov 13 @ 9:27am....that would be the dumbest thing to do in this instance! You are supposed to comply with the demands, if you don't it could cost someone there life! No amount of money is worth someones life, it said there were customers in the bank at the time of the robbery, the teller did the right thing. If you want to do something so stupid, I hope you never put someone elses life at risk! I also hope if you are a clerk somewhere you don't lose your own life over money!

    I was in the Thomasville Road branch when it got robbed in Aug. The manager did push the buttone but they were gone long before the Sheriff arrived. There were 2 guys with mask and guns. The reason they don;t know in this robbery or in the robbery I was in how they got away is because BOA doesn't have cameras on the outside of the bank..nice huh!!

    hey George, not blaming banks for idiots but what good are rules if they aren't enforced.

    you know, i don't see a gun on him. i would've let him cause a scene and pressed the emergency button under the desk if i were the clerk. he wouldnt have gotten away from me.

    first it would be against their civil rights to prevent someone from wearing hats/sunglasses. second you all have no clue about banks, security or anything. nothing good to say and just complain. bank robberies aren't due to too many banks, its due to idiots robbing them. place blame where it should be.

    What a thing to do say DOG!!! Go back to robbing convenience stores. You sound like a real piece of work!

    If there wasn't a bank on every corner maby the banks could get decent security and slow down the bank robbery's, and the THUGS would go back to robbing convienent stores.
